Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that he considered signing Edinson Cavani while he was in charge in North London.

Cavani was plying his trade in Serie A for Palermo at the time in which Redknapp had scouts to cast an eye over the Uruguayan but was put off by the Italian outfit’s valuation of between £25million and £30million.

Spurs moved to deny reports in 2010 by Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini that the North Londoners had tabled a €35m (£28m) offer to land both Cavani and Danish defender Simon Kjaer (Guardian).

The 33-year-old completed a move to Manchester United yesterday on a free transfer after leaving PSG in the summer and penned a one-year deal at Old Trafford (BBC).
